Spring Staples at Gap Herald Square

Today's guest staff post is by Vita, who checks out spring staples at Gap Herald Square.

Gap has some cute staple items for the spring, like this white sweater ($69.50).

Orange tee on clearance, $9.99.
I know, I know, it’s 70 and sunny outside, but you’re going to need something when the sun goes down, and something white to show off that new tan.

This plaid button-down ($54.50) has a nice mix of masculine and feminine touches. The front looks rugged, with sleeves bunched up to make me wish I had a personal garden to weed on the Hudson River. But look closely and the blue slivers start to shimmer in the light… and then check out the buttons in the back! Definitely accentuates my, uh, curves.

Speaking of bunched up sleeves, this denim jacket with the asymmetrical zipper ($69.50) looked rad on the rack. Not so much on me. They only had L and XL left, so it was less than flattering. But the pockets are still fun.

And then I found this fitted leather military jacket. Sizes on the floor were all too small for me, but I just had to try it.

(ed. note: I wish this was a staple in my closet!)
I couldn’t get over it, so I tried it buttoned, unbuttoned...

Putting the jacket back on the rack confirmed my taste in quality fashion. This jacket’s price tag had ripped off, but the tag on the rest: $328!

Ooooh. $328. And you just KNOW it'll never stick around long enough to go on sale!
